Finally I have found a site that tells me I am not alone in this hell called menopause. I to have been experiencing severe bouts of dizziness couples with the internal heater that turns on when this happens (which as you all know, frightens the bloody wits out of you, especially when they happen with no apparent relation to what you may or may not have been doing). I have had them now for about 2 years off and on but now reading your stories I'll be a lot less apprehensive when it next happens. So roll on hot flushes and bright red face, bloated addomen, aches and pains in every joint of my overweight body and lets not forget about the sudden drying out of my skin and the grey hairs.
Thank you all for making me feel a lot less panicky about all of this, obviously, normal and natural happenings.
